Help me find a big-button phone for my elderly father

My father has been using a plain old phone for decades. He's been somewhat visually impaired for a long time, but recently he started receiving an eye treatment in his one good eye that has reduced his vision even further.

Need to get rid of squirrels

Any help and insight on the following:
Diogenes Syndrome. Geriatric self-neglect. My dad's house is inhabited by 8-12 squirrels (estimate), he won't let us in the house and I'm the last one of five sons to confront the immediate issue. He's lucid, 82. Help!
